Over 30 customers attended ateb’s annual Gardening Competition prize giving at Kensington Court last week (Thursday 12th August).
The sun was shining and there was a gentle breeze as customers shared gardening tips, enjoyed beautifully presented cream teas, made new friends and caught up with each other after many lost months. Certificates, National Garden Centre & Love2Shop vouchers were handed out to the hard-working winners, whose work was on display for all to admire.
ateb’s youngest winner was Madeline Massey who scooped the Best Child’s Garden Award and who also came second in the Best Vegetable Produce class with her row of apple trees. Congratulations were also given to all, recognising the effort people had made in creating, nurturing & maintaining their outdoor areas, something ateb thinks very highly of.
